Community Workstream

The Community Workstream includes projects that are aimed at enabling local people to work together to improve their community without the need for external help.

Our Leap of Faith Assumption is that if Create on the Square helps to create an environment where local people can develop their skills to the full, those people will be able to build a supportive, resilient and self-reliant community in Cheltenham West, without the need for external help.
